Bortezomib in Treating Patients With Unresectable or Metastatic Gastric Cancer or Gastroesophageal Junction Adenocarcinoma

2014-08-27 03:54:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bortezomib in treating patients who have unresectable or metastatic gastric cancer or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the efficacy of bortezomib in patients with unresectable or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.

Secondary

- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

- Determine possible predictors of response to this drug, using pretreatment tumor immunohistochemistry, in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, nonrandomized, multicenter study.

Patients receive bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-33 patients will be accrued for this study within 5-12 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

A proto-oncogene protein and member of the Wnt family of proteins. It is frequently up-regulated in human GASTRIC CANCER and is a tumor marker (TUMOR MARKERS, BIOLOGICAL) of gastric and COLORECTAL CANCER.

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.

Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.
